Thanks for posting your query.
Sudden loss of power in the legs after getting up from the bed is likely to be due to nerve compression at the level of spine due to spondylottic changes in the spine or suggestive of stroke.
Most of the times the strength returns after a while once the posture is changed. An MRI of the spine will help in detecting any long term changes that have taken place.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
